Congratulations to this week’s Bulla Local Heroes winner – Ulli Austermann!
Ulli Austermann is an important part of both the Bayside Raiders Basketball Club as well as the Bayside Christian College in Langwarrin. She was nominated by Sheila Waring for her amazing contributions to the local community as well as her selflessness and passion for junior basketball.
Sheila Waring said in her nomination:
“Within 4 years this lady has built our school’s basketball club from 1 team to 7 to over 20 teams we have now. This is fantastic as the school only has approx 550 children so that’s about a quarter of the school. As it has got bigger we have had to form a committee and Ulli is our club’s secretary. Ulli is an amazing lady who has paid for children’s basketball fees because she knew the families were struggling. All this as a single mum that is supporting 3 of her own children is truly amazing. Ulli deserves so much and this would be humbling to her!”
